Clean Water Access, India

Bringing safe drinking water to underserved communities in India through communal WaterHealth Centres

Project overview

  • Region: Asia

  • Project type: Water

  • Standards: Gold Standard

WaterHealth India (WHIN) is part of an organisation which aims to provide sufficient safe drinking water to underserved areas in India. Using advanced ultra violet (UV) and reverse osmosis (RO) technology in locally built WaterHealth Centres, this project purifies available water for a nominal fee. Designed to replace local wells and other water supplies, in which the water quality is not assured and can result in the spread of waterborne diseases, each centre treats approximately 12,000 litres a day, which serves roughly 500 people. Water Benefit Certificates generate the necessary revenue for expansion across India. Currently the project is operating across Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

Clean Water Access, India

Additional benefits

  • WaterHealth undertakes extensive hygiene awareness campaigns in all communities where centres are installed; providing education around waterborne diseases and good hygiene practices to ensure that water sold is consumed safely.
  • The operation of community water systems creates local jobs for women and youths who typically take on such roles.
  • WaterHealth works closely with community members to develop appropriate payment options to ensure water services are affordable for all.

In India, 88% of the population have intermittent access to improved water sources, and only 31% have access to adequate sanitation facilities.

Water scarcity generates significant problems for human health, social stability, ecosystems and businesses.
